- April 3, 2004
- On Saturday, April 3, 2004 the Centro de Analisis de
Fenomenos Espaciales conducted a UFO investigation in the town of Ucu,
Yucatan, where several interviews were conducted to glean information about
sightings in the area.
- The site was visited due to reports of a strange presence:
triangular, zig-zagging lights in the sky and objects that manifest themselves.
- Arriving at the site, which is close to the city of Merida,
members of CAFE visited the home of Hugo Raciel Luna, 24, who told us fo
several UFO experiences.
- Hugo began by describing his first UFO sighting. At around
4 p.m. in the month of December  he saw a very bright light having
a magnitude greater than the planet Venus. He told us that the light's
brilliance increased and diminished for several minutes. He thought at
first that it was an airliner or a satellite, but rejected this possibility
because the object lacked tha navigation lights of an aircraft. He adds
that there was no sound whatsoever and that the object did not follow a
definite trajectory, meaning that it couldn't be a satellite. He explains
that several local residents came out of their homes to see the object,
amounting to 9 witnesses after a while. He was starting to think the object
might be some planet when the light suddely began moving away and vanished
- After describing this inital sighting, he has devoted
more time to looking at the sky and told us that on a recent Sunday evening
he saw three lights over the Ucu baseball field which were approaching
in a zig-zagging motion between 11 or 12 at night. He said that in the
measure that the lights approached, he could tell that their number increased
to a total of nine in a triangular formation. Hugo says they were the
size of the lamp on top of a streetlight and appeared to be heading from
the vicinity of Celestun.
- Upon seeing this, Hugo alerted his mother and aunts and
all of the locals came out of their homes--a total of 15 witnesses on this
occasion--and remained outside until 1:30 a.m., at which time the lights
- Hugo explains that during the time that the objects were
visible there was neither sound nor smoke. He comments that there was "a
lot of air in the atmosphere" [sic] and the objects were forming triangles
three by three--the first one toward the west, the second toward the north,
and the third toward the east. After several turns, the obejcts constituted
a larger triangle formed by the nine lights. Once this configuration was
achieved, they sped off in the direction of Mérida.
